The Other Brother: Forbidden

Lauren Hawkeye, Tawny Stokes

Genres: Erotic Romance, New Adult, Romance


 From two New York Times bestselling authors comes a stunning tale of betrayal and blood…

Simple. The consummate good girl, this is the word I used to describe my life… until my stepbrother Seth came to live with us. Until that point, I’d been a very good girl… but my older, emotionally blocked stepbrother made me want to do very bad things.

With him.

In the course of one night everything changed, and my simple world was torn to shreds. I wanted to hate him. I did hate him. Mostly.

But now he’s back. And nothing will ever be simple again.

The Other Brother is a novel told in three parts.

My Review:

The Other Brother is a story told in three parts. After reading part one, Forbidden, I’m looking forward to clearing time in my schedule for part two, Taboo. The “new, hot, and popular thing” in books these days is the “out of bounds” relationships between step-siblings, and there are some really well written ones out there, and some that I had to put down. This is one of the better ones out there…and I found myself happily disturbed throughout parts…

Why disturbed? Well, there were parts that gave me that “Ut-Oh” feeling…you know the feeling, when something just feels off… the creepy perverted old man staring at you or the kidnapper about to capture you feeling that your parents, Officer White, and your teachers warned you about in grade school. Yeah, I felt that in this book…but not where you think I may have felt the icks.

Allegra is a red-haired, high school girl in the first part of Forbidden. She’s not quite 16 years old yet… and lives with her older brother, Theo, her dad and stepmom. Enter Seth, the stepbrother she didn’t know she has, who happens to move in with her and her family. Seth is 4 years older (already, hot!)… not only are they step-siblings, but I love an age difference! Allegra has the hots for Seth, Seth has the hots for Allegra, but they don’t know how the other feels, because they KNOW they can’t act on their feelings. So the buildup and chemistry is pretty great between these two. I’m rooting for them. Seth does these little things for Allegra that wets the panties and makes me swoon. So why did I feel the icks AND the swoons?

The icks came from the character Theo… yep, Allegra’s “real” brother. There’s just that “ut-oh” vibe about him…and I can’t wait to explore the icks with the hotness.

Part one ends years after an incident sends Seth far, far away when fate intertwines and Allegra and Seth’s paths cross again. And boy is it OFF. THE. CHARTS. HOT. Part two, Taboo, is currently available, and Part three, Illicit, is out soon!

You like the popular forbidden romance? You’ll love Seth and Allegra!

About Lauren Hawkeye

Lauren Hawkeye/ Lauren Jameson never imagined that she’d wind up telling stories for a living… though when she looks back, it’s easy to see that she’s the only one who is surprised. Always “the kid who read all the time”, Lauren made up stories about her favorite characters once she’d finished a book… and once spent an entire year narrating her own life internally. No, really. But where she was just plain odd before publication, now she can at least claim to have an artistic temperament.
Lauren lives in the Rocky Mountains of Alberta, Canada with her husband, toddler, pit bull and idiot cat, though they do not live in an igloo, nor do they drive a dogsled. In her nonexistent spare time Lauren can be found knitting (her husband claims that her snobby yarn collection is exorbitant), reading anything she can get her hands on, or sweating her way through spin class. She loves to hear from her readers!

About Tawny Stokes

Tawny Stokes has always been a writer. From an early age, she’d spin tales of serial killers in love, vampires taking over the world, and sometimes about fluffy bunnies turned bunnicidal maniacs. An honour student in high school, with a penchant for math and English, you’d never know it by the foot high blue Mohawk and Doc Martens, which often got her into trouble. No longer a Mohawk wearer, Tawny still enjoys old school punk rock, trance, zombie movies, teen horror films, and fluffy bunnies. She lives in Canada with her fantastical daughter, two cats, and spends most of her time creating new stories for teens.

Tawny also writes adult paranormal/urban fantasy fiction under the name Vivi Anna, and is an aspiring screenwriter.
